Americas Best Value Inn
Ranked #3 of 9 Hotels in Los Banos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We stayed here one night while on our way to Santa Barbara from Lake Tahoe. The manager/owner(?) was very nice, both on the phone and when we arrived. The room was clean and smelled fine. We paid $52 for the king sized room and it was worth it. Los Banos is not a vacation, but if you are driving thru and need a place, stay here.

Room Tip: Ask the manager for a nice room.

Stayed a couple weeks ago very clean and excellent service. Was in town for business and looking for a value place to stay. Was locked out locked out of my car and owner helped call triple A. Definitely a well ran establishment. A little bit out of the way but by far the best place to stay in Los Banos.

Granted this was relatively inexpensive and only stayed for an overnight stop between Oregon and LA area, but the room was simply not good. The bathroom emitted an odor like sewage--could be the toilet seated incorrectly?--and the air conditioning was not effective at getting the room below the mid-70's (it wasn't that warm outside). The bed was fine, the TV worked and the room was clean but it was hard to get a good night's sleep due to the temperature in the room. Shutting the bathroom door did keep the odor from seeping into the rest of the room. The pool has been closed for several years according to the person working at the front desk. Found a Black Bear Diner for dinner close by and appreciated not being right off of I-5. It was okay for a quick stay for 1 person, but not up to usual standards.

Los Banos is 6 miles from I-5 and America's Best Value Inn is worth the time and travel. It is clean, is dog friendly, located on a commercial strip with lots of food choices and near a residential area for walking yourself and/or the dog.

This motel is 5-6 miles off the I-5 and well worth the extra 5 min as compared to other towns. Room was as nice as hotels I have stayed at for twice the price. Great bed and pillows, everything was clean, Bathroom was like new. Micro and fridge like new. Very friendly front desk clerk. Slept wonderfully and will definitely return.

Came to this hotel for a fishing and hunting show and would not stay here again. Hotel was right on the main drag, so it was very noisy. Room had cracks in walls, bathroom has a hole in the wall. The room smelled like cigarettes and was smelly. Bed was of very poor quality and very soft. Parking lot is VERY SMALL. Didn't want to leave and loose my parking spot otherwise would have had to park on the street!! Room was very small and just not a place I usually would stay. This was the host hotel for the show and I hope they go somewhere else next year. Pros were the staff, they were very nice and friendly.

Hello,
Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback on our property and service. Our staff is very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are aware that our parking lot can be very tight to maneuver when it is busy, but there is very little that we can do about this issue. We are looking to do some renovations in the near future that include upgrades to televisions and bedding. Thank you again for your review and we hope to see you again soon.
